Last Ever David Crosby Show
In October 2019, David Crosby joined solo artist and regular collaborator Michele Willis on stage at 918 Bathurst in Ontario, Canada, with the pair performing Crosby’s tracks ‘Glory’ and ‘Janet’.
They also performed a live cover of Joni Mitchell’s track ‘Woodstock’, along with Willis’ single ‘Trigger’.
This performance was part of a live recording of Willis’ EP ‘Just One Voice’.
Alongside the video, Willis also wrote, “David Crosby flew in to Toronto and performed as a guest at the live concert with my OG bandmates in a renovated buddhist temple. Yeah, it was special. I hope you enjoy this delicious version of Trigger, featuring my great friend David Crosby”.

Having achieved chart success with his first band The Byrds, David Crosby also joined up with Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young to form their own group.
Paying tribute to Crosby, Stephen Stills hailed him as a “giant of a musician”, while Nash described the late singer as “fearless in life and in music”.
“David is gone, but his music lives on”, Neil Young also wrote on in tribute to Crosby via his Neil Young Archives website. “The soul of CSNY, David’s voice and energy were at the heart of our band. His great songs stood for what we believed in and it was always fun and exciting when we got to play together”.
